We've criticized baseball for their inability to adapt to the changing times. Yet, for all of baseball's archaic traditions there's one new technology teams are jumping on.

Trash tweeting divisional rivals. 

The Red Sox and Rays went at it a little over a week ago on the social media site, and now the Braves and Nationals are picking a fight with one another as well. 

The video below provides some background on how this Twitter beef all started, and the tweets after are in reference to that video. Enjoy, twits...
